Conducting a Leadership Metaphor Explorer session requires no special training or coaching skills yet produces a dynamic, interactive conversation. In sharing different metaphors among themselves, team and organizational members can stimulate wisdom and understanding about how leadership plays out in the organization, in communities, and across geographical and cultural boundaries.

Leadership Metaphor Explorer is used as a tool for leadership development, including understanding leadership culture as it is now and how it might be re-created in the future. The metaphors illustrate the three stages of dependent, independent, and interdependent leadership cultures.

“If you want more profound conversations, I recommend this tool.” —Marcy Nelson-Garrison, Choice: The Magazine of Professional Coaching
